Bubble tea is delicious! It will keep you craving more, no matter how sweet or icy you like it. With spring and summer on the horizon, having a cold and refreshing drink with warm, chewy tapioca bubbles can quench your thirst in a way that water can’t always do. Treat your taste buds to some boba tea today! Pro-tip: it is also possible to get it hot instead of iced, but it’s ultimately up to you and how the weather is on the day that you order some!
Black Milk Tea
If this is your first time sampling boba, then you can’t go wrong with a plain milk tea that is made with black tea and has milk, ice, and sugar fixed to your liking. Anyone with lactose intolerance can, despite the name, enjoy this beverage too, since non-dairy milk or lactose-free milk are often used in place of conventional milk. Just be sure to ask for your bubbles to be made QQ – extra chewy in the way that delights fans of boba all over Taiwan!
Mango and Honeydew
Anyone who loves mangoes should treat themselves to a mango milk tea or a mango smoothie with boba mixed in; likewise, honeydew lovers can have their favorite too! Honeydew melons are as the name implies, incredibly sweet but also refreshing – great for those hot summers in Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Florida! By the way, since honeydew is already so naturally sweet, ask for it to be less sweetened and it won’t be as intense.
Green Milk Tea
You can also have your drink made with green tea. Some of the variants that you can look out for include jasmine, matcha, and oolong!
Melons aren’t the only flavors that get to be included in the fun! No, if you love strawberries, then you are in luck! It will help remind you of strawberry milk that you drank growing up, and it’s still just as delicious. Ah, the sweet taste of nostalgia!
For the more adventurous palate, we recommend trying taro milk tea. It’s a vegetable and root that imbues your milk tea with an intriguing shade of purple that will still taste vaguely of vanilla!
